The Federation and Academy

Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy is a very successful 3-18 school, proud to belong to the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation. We offer an exciting and innovative model for education within the community that we serve, with broad appeal to parents and pupils alike.

Offering education across all key stages which has consistently been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most recently in December 2014.

Facilities at the school are first class; from the building itself to the resources which support the delivery of a broad curriculum including an extremely popular and well maintained Learning Resource Centre. Our playing fields, gymnasium, drama theatre and ICT facilities all contribute to ensuring we deliver an education for character, a feature of all Haberdashers’ schools that is part of our DNA.

We take a comprehensive mix of children and expect nothing less than the highest personal goals for each pupil.  Where pupils are disadvantaged, we expect them to make rapid progress to catch up with their peers. Our focus is to ensure each child we teach can read, write and do mathematics to a good standard in order to be successful in their education and life.

Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy is 30 minutes from London Bridge by train and the school’s proximity to the capital is a strong factor in enabling teachers to enhance the cultural experience for our pupils through enrichment activities.

The Role

We wish to appoint an exceptional Physical Education practitioner who will use their experience, extensive subject knowledge and vision to lead a dynamic and forward thinking P.E. department. This is a truly exciting opportunity for an existing or aspiring Head of PE to further develop this already high functioning department and to work as part of the Physical Education team, across the Federation.

The Head of P.E. will contribute to the overall leadership and management of the Academy and be active in promoting its aims, and supporting an ethos that promotes achievement and outstanding teaching and learning.  In addition, the Head of P.E. will contribute to sports activities already scheduled within the wider Haberdashers’ group of schools and other local and national competitions. 

The Candidate

We are seeking a driven individual who will be relentless in ensuring that students are provided with top class teaching which leads to excellent progress in Physical Education.

The candidate must be a compelling communicator with an ability to champion the subject to pupils with a fully comprehensive range of abilities. You will also bring real energy and dynamism to the role, alongside genuine enthusiasm and passion for your P.E. and sport.

We will give you the tools to do the job and an environment where your talents can be nurtured and rewarded. Be part of our team and part of the future success of the Academy.
